The Uganda Investment Authority Board of Directors Chairman, Emely Kugonza has ordered staffs not to attend a meeting called by the interdicted Executive Director, Jolly Kaguhangire.
ChimpReports has exclusively seen a communication from Mr. Kugonza to the Ag. ED, Basil Ajer and copied to all Board members and UIA staffs.
The Board Chairman in a brief email, stated that Ms. Kaguhangire on Wednesday “Illegally” called for a meeting of all staffs to take place today.
“It has come to the Board’s knowledge that the interdicted ED in the names of Jolly Kaguhangire has called for a meeting of all UIA staff tomorrow,” Kugonza said in an email sent on Wednesday evening.
He went ahead and directed all staffs to stay away from Kaguhangire’s meeting.
“This is to direct you not to attend the said illegal meeting as the interdicted ED has no mandate to call for such meeting,” he noted.
He urged UIA staff to continue with their normal duties and ignore any instructions from Ms. Kaguhangire.
“The staff of UIA are urged to continue with their normal activities and disregard any communication or instruction from the interdicted ED,” he concluded.
The Board on Tuesday interdicted Ms. Kaguhangire over allegations of abuse of office and corruption.
On Wednesday, she ridiculed the Board of Directors’ decision and flatly refused to vacate office.
“The allegations that were made against me are unfounded and totally baseless and I remain available to answer all of them satisfactorily in an unbiased forum,” she said.
